ABC No Rio and Flux Factory are proud to collaborate on the process-based exhibition, Against Competition/Towards Mutual Aid. Seeking an alternative to the competitive atmosphere of art production and exhibition.
At PowerSuit Camp we don our Executive Suits and Take Things Seriously – including your biggest dreams and aspirations.
Over this past week a team of artists and Girl Scouts have met every afternoon – working together to explore their Dream Jobs. They’ve invented different dance moves-of-the-day, interviewed our Flux neighbors, made zines, and sewed, glued, and taped personalized PowerSuits together. You can peak in on what’s been going on at camp here.
Everyone is invited to experience what was created during PowerSuit Camp at the public presentation and exhibition, Saturday February 9th from 6-9pm. An open house and discussion about the project will take place in the gallery on Sunday February 10th from 2-5pm.
About the artist:
What would your most courageous self would do, say, and wear? Aliya Bonar’s work challenges you to answer that question for yourself. The “PowerSuit” your most courageous self wears is a personal talisman, relating to your body, history, and biggest dreams. Aliya has worked with Creative Time, Flux Factory, Elsewhere Collaborative, The Wassaic Project, the Laundromat Project, and the Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute to teach workshops and produce events that engage everyday people in making authentic connections.
